UM2 - from original gear to MK7 - which settings?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i've modded my UM2 with a Reprap Bulldog feeder (link to my post in the german section), original UM2 stepper motor.

For that i've changed the original gear with a MK7 gear.

The MK7 gear ist bigger than the original:

original scope: 25,13mm

MK7 scope: 34,55mm

So with the bigger scope there is more material transportation. Which settings must be changed - flow, filament diameter, e stepping?

For now i've changed the material flow on the UM2 to 95%, which seems to be quite good.

Thanks

Marcus

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
